totally non-Vikes related, so i apologize for the very off-topic subject this will be, but i had to share a few gems from my fantasy draft tonight. we're in our 5th yr, online, had a few newcomers rotating in and out over the years but there's a solid core of managers who have been there from the start.
an interesting 1st rd to say the least...
- Adrian Foster
- Andre Johnson (<~~ first eyebrow raise of the evening came verrrrry quickly...)
- Chris Johnson (<~~ ballsy move.)
- Philip Rivers (<~~...really?? wow.)
- Jamaal Charles
- Larry Fitzgerald (<~~ i was gonna be lucky if i got him in the 2nd, but this early...?!)
- AP (<~~ this is me...keeper league...what can i say, i've had him 5 yrs running, now...)
- LeSean McCoy
- Aaron Rodgers
- Michael Turner
- Ray Rice
- Rashard Mendenhall
so the end kind of tapered off regularly, but a crazy start. rd 2 was steady, but then rd 3...
- 3.6 - Philly DEF (<~~ haha, foolish newcomer, bummed i don't even get to play him.)
- 3.11 - NE DEF (<~~ haha, foolish Patriots fan, pumped i get to play her twice.)
after that it mellowed out pretty well until a run on DEF from the late 6th through the 8th. people are crazy...
FWIW, a six-pack of Summer Shandy and a glass of Sambuca later, i'm feelin' pretty good about my team:
- QB - Josh Freeman
- WR - Mike Wallace
- WR - Mike Williams (TB)
- WR - Percy Harvin
- RB - Adrian Peterson
- RB - Mike Tolbert
- TE - Greg Olsen
- K - Stephen Gostkowski
- DEF - St Louis
- BN - QB Colt McCoy
- BN - RB Daniel Thomas
- BN - RB Ryan Williams
- BN - WR Danny Amendola
- BN - WR Denarius Moore
- BN - TE Julius Thomas
feel free to grade it if you want, and post your own fantasy roster(s)...!!
